COOLSCULPTING ®

HOW COOLSCULPTING WORKS?

This innovative treatment is available in Brazil. With this new technique the patient can eliminate 20-25% of fat from a specific region in one session. CoolSculpting® is ideal for those people who want to reduce fat in a specific area without having surgery, especially in the areas of the flanks, abdomen and hips. The patient can return to their daily activities the same day.


THE EQUIPMENT

CoolSculpting® is the first treatment for reduction of fat approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration). The equipment was designed by Harvard University and it provides localised breakdown of fat using the cold (cryolipolysis). CoolSculpting® has different sizes of applicators that are positioned on the localised areas of fat. With just one session it is possible to lose approximately 20 to 25% of fat from the area treated. The equipment is registered by Anvisa (Agência Nacional de Vigilância Sanitária). The registration number is: VR Medical: MS 8.010.251.086-2.


THE PROCEDURE

During the procedure, CoolSculpting® attacks the fat cells of the selected region. The physician chooses the region to be treated and positions the cup applicator. The apparatus pulls and holds the fat between its two cooling panels automatically for one hour. The sensation is a firm tug and the freezing does not affect the skin or the other organs. The skin is protected by a gel barrier during the session. As this procedure is non-invasive, the patient can resume daily activities immediately after treatment the very same day.
